Tennis club’s men’s team continue winning start

BOSTON Tennis Club’s Men’s Firsts kept their 100 per cent record intact in the Regional Division of Aegon Team Tennis event.

Hosting Northampton Lawn Tennis Club on Sunday, they made it a convincing second win this season.

The team of Will Mason, Dominic Beesley, Richard Cook and Steve Green won all four singles and then both of the doubles rubbers to stamp their authority on this fixture.

In the Slazenger Lincolnshire Doubles League, there were two in-club matches.

Boston ladies’ Firsts beat the Seconds, and the Boston men’s Fifths beat the Sixths.

Boston ladies, in the absence of several nominated players took a crucial 2-1 lead in the first round and maintained the edge to win 5-4.

Playing for the first team were Emily Hawkesworth, Ashleigh Frankish, Linda Tinsley, Helen Cook, Sophie Hawkesworth and, in the second team, were Catherine Ellis, Claire Smith, Rachel Gedney, Dana Kenneally-Forrester, Vikki Lowe and Mary Smura.

The men’s Fifths earned an 8-1 result against the Sixths.

For the Fifths, Richard Tupper, Michal Chmielik, David Makins, Ryan Frankish, Jeremy George-Jones and Courtney George-Jones were playing.

The sixth team included Richard Woods, Zak McDonnell Woods, Richard Cozens, Sev Smura, Tom Cozens and Toby McDonnell-Woods.

In the Lincolnshire Aegon Team Tennis League, Boston under eights’ mini red played their first match of the season against a strong Grantham team.

The Boston team was comprised of Harvey Vickers, Jordan Stone, William Cheer and Rodrigo Quevedo.

After the first two rounds the team found themselves 5-3 down, before fighting back to win 9-7.

Individual mini tennis successes involve William Cheer, who won a grade three tournament in Cambridge last Saturday.

He won the final 10-7, 10-5 and win the tournament.

Thomas Cozens went to Eastgate for a grade four tournament and reached the semi-finals, but was knocked out by a higher-rated player from Yorkshire.
